Wellness Council Membership Frequently Asked Questions
The Wellness Council of Indiana is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping organizations and communities around the state navigate their well-being journeys.
The Wellness Council of Indiana (WCI) works collaboratively to positively impact the economic vitality of the state of Indiana by evaluating and guiding workplaces and communities through the development of their own comprehensive health and wellness strategy. WCI members and staff inspire active living, community engagement and corporate social responsibility.
Member-only access to templates for wellness programs and challenges, compliant smoking cessation programming, helplines, workbooks, on-site or phone consultations and inventories are a few of the resources available to our members. Our AchieveWELL designation guides you in making strategic decisions for your wellness initiatives that will lead toward making an impact on your organization’s bottom line. Additionally, members can take advantage of discounted pricing for the Indiana Wellness Summit and other trainings.
In today’s business climate, one key strategy to keeping and retaining top talent is to focus on employee engagement. Best practices in engagement focus on having our high achievers healthy, happy with their role and excited about their future with the company. Engagement strategies are essential pillars for the evolution of successful workplace wellness initiatives. Building a strategy of well-being centered on keeping employees engaged, safe and healthy reduces absenteeism, increases performance and reduces turnover.

Additionally, we host regional round-table discussions and peer summits across the state that provide opportunities to interact with your peers and share best practices.
